Small Woodland Partnership Goals

• Expand BC's productive forest landbase by encouraging small scale forestry on private lands in a manner that increases rural income and local jobs.

• Support the integration of forestry with other values and uses of private land by assisting landowners to make informed land and resource decisions.

• Promote the development of a stewardship ethic amongst landowners which is based on sound forestry, agricultural, and environmental principles.

• Increase public awareness of the importance of private forest land and its importance to rural economic development.
